Boy, 6, earns thousands with lemonade stand

GLADEWATER, TX (KLTV) -

What started out as a small lemonade stand on Walnut street in Gladewater, turned into a block party.

Starting at 10 a.m., cars and people wrapped around the block to grab a refreshing glass of cold lemonade.

Six-year-old Drew Cox decided to sell lemonade to help his father with medical bills; Drew's father Randy Cox was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer three months ago.

Drew says he came up with the idea to help his dad feel better.

"He is so important to me. We like to play with each other; Lots of times we like to play games," Drew said.

Drew's lemonade stand has also made a mark on his community.

"From a small child, you know that love can come from a small child, and just blossom into something so amazing," said Robin McDaniel. McDaniel, like many others, came to support Drew's cause.

With visitors from as far as Nacogdoches and Shreveport, the family says Drew's lemonade stand earned more than $10,000 on Saturday.
